Theres something of a warerhouse vibe to this great new EP by the legendary Freestylers, 'Love My Bass' takes it back with a summer of 91 vibe, the famous 'You Know How To Love Me' vocal is used to great effect over some old skool hardcore stabs and breaks with a sweet organ drop, the minute I heard this, I was hooked!!! 'SkAcid' mixes up dub reggae vibes with some 303 action for a seriously funky workout, still smashing it in 2014, big ups to the Freestylers, you HAVE to own this release!!!!

N Type & Surge have a new EP out on Wheel & Deal Records, taking a different direction from previous releases and looking to expand the limits of bass music, this new EP goes for a more industrial sound incorporating elements of grime, techno and other genres along the way on a rich journey of sounds, staying ahead of the game with finesse, true bass heads cannot be without this
Being big fans of Hybrid Logic and the excellent One Forty Deep blog, we knew this was going to be a great EP straight away and it certainly is, deep dubby techno inspired 140 riddims in abundance, big booming subs, lovely clicks and beeps, this is one slice of quality deep bass you do NOT want to miss out on!!!!

Sonars Ghost has been making music since 1991 evolving through hardcore to jungle & DnB under various aliases, many of which are featured here, you get some classic old skool hardcore under the R Core alias, some of which popped up on the 2 Hungry Ghosts blog a couple of years, tracks like 'Tribute To SUAD' showcase the early beginnings of what would later become DnB with light melodic pads, 'Going Home' takes a haunting vocal and merges chopped up breakbeats in a very Metalheadz like track, 'My Enemys Enemy' is pure old skool hardcore, euphoric and uplifting. 'Taking Hits' is a trip to the darkside back in 93/94, under his Romero alias we get a jazzy liquid funk 95 style roller with sweet pads, horns and percussion, The Army Of Ghosts Remix of Soza'a 'Understand The Process' is a classic timeless jungle opening with a urgent intro before dropping into some killer amen tearout, we also get 3 tracks under the Regression Sessions alias, the searing and swooping 'Last Dark Thought', the bleep n bass style 'Show You 89' and 'Show You VIP', lastly, Argento's 'The Hidden VIP' takes things into the late 90s with some tough drumfunk with elements of light and dark perfectly fused together, this whole EP is a blueprint of how it was back in the day, a sound that can truly never be beaten or imitated.
